The Takoma Park Safe Routes to School 5K Challenge, TKPK5K, will not be held on Sunday, May 3 as planned. Many thanks to the runners who registered early, the Race Committee and the sponsors who signed on to support this wonderful tradition in Takoma Park. 

Registered runners and sponsors will be contacted separately with refund information. 

We are evaluating all options available to hold the race in some form this year, if possible, so stay tuned.

TKPK5K is all about safety, health and fitness. While you are making efforts to stay fit, please remember to follow all recommended guidelines to stay healthy and safe.

 

 

What is Safe Routes to School?

The mission of the Takoma Safe Routes to School program is to make it safe for students to walk and bike to school. The program serves students and families at Takoma Park, Piney Branch, Rolling Terrace, and East Silver Spring Elementary Schools, and Takoma Park Middle School.  A Safe Routes to School grant from the State of Maryland funds the program, in part.

To learn more about any of the following programs, contact the Safe Routes to School Coordinator at lucyn@takomaparkmd.gov.

Bike to School Day will be postponed until Fall 2020.

Modeled after the successful Walk to School Day, students celebrate Bike to School Day by riding to school with their peers, teachers and guests on the first Wednesday in May.  Each year students and parents ride to school together and learn about proper helmet fitting and basic bike safety.

iCan Shine Bike Camp for Individuals with Disabilities

THE 2020 ICAN BIKE CAMP HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2020.  Takoma Park Safe Routes to School has hosted the iCan Bike Camp,  for five years . Check icanshine.org for other camps nearby this summer.

The camp is designed to teach individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike and become  lifelong independent riders! The camp is open to 30 Maryland residents between 8 and 14 years of age who can attend the camp for free.

Sixty volunteers are needed to assist the riders and provide encouragement and motivation. Volunteers must be 15 and over and agree to come to the same session every day of camp. They are asked to arrive 15 minutes early for a briefing, so the total commitment is 90 minutes a day. Volunteering at the camp is Montgomery County SSL approved.
